Dear Transit Colleague:


As of October 1, 2008, the new FY 2009 Master Agreement is effective.  As you know, the Master Agreement is a comprehensive list of the statutory and regulatory requirements that apply to each project that is funded with FTA assistance.  It is incorporated by reference in each new grant that is approved.  Unless otherwise notified, grantees are required to comply with the most current requirements.


We would like to make you aware of the following useful website which contains the new Master Agreement along with the changes made from last year:  http://www.fta.dot.gov/funding/apply/grants_financing_8714.html


Please share this information with your legal staff and all others involved in applying for and implementing grants funded with FTA funds.  If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Greene, Regional Counsel, at (215) 656-7100 or email nancy.greene@dot.gov.
